The Senate has confirmed the appointments of Tony Coscia and Derek Kan to the Amtrak board of directors.

Coscia is currently chairman of the Amtrak board and received another five-year term.

“I thank the administration and Senate for the nomination and confirmation to continue to help guide the future of America’s Railroad,” he said in a statement. “We have made significant progress during my five years on the board, and I look forward to working with the other board members, executive leadership and the employees to continue to grow ridership, increase operational efficiencies and improve the company’s financial position.”

Kan is new to the Amtrak board and is a California resident who is director of strategy at Genapsys. Previously, he served as a management consultant at Bain & Company and as an adviser at Elliott Management.

Coscia has served on the Amtrak board since June 2010. He is a partner at Windels Marx Lane & Mittendorf LLP. Between 2003 and 2011, Coscia was chairman of the board of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
